Which Browser do you prefer, For those whom use other Broswers I have included them in the poll also.


I prefer MSN Browser.

This would go in the computer forum.
And I use Opera, along with, like, 2% of other people here. When my favorite IE shell went downhill, I used Firefox for a while. The plugins are nifty, but when you load 8~12 tabs on a regular basis (Such as myself) you really notice the slowdown. Which can be…annoying. Opera keeps its speed up pretty well, and has some cool integrated features.

I –had- tried it before and liked it, but PC would just not load under it. When we had that “attack” and reinstalled vB, it fixed it. I didn’t know this though until Sawah tried it. When she did, I gave it another go, and worked with it. Now middle clicking works *much* better than S-D&D for tab opening, and it’s a pretty nice browser all around. *cuddles Sawah* Just one of the improvements my life has gained, in her marvelous light. ^^

I use IE, but I wish I had Firefox. I hear that it is way better than IE. My Dad has Firefox, but you can probably tell from my post that he doesn't share. XD

I use Opera.
I was quite content with Explorer, actually. Until, ironically enough, all Abby's talk of the usefulness of tabs finally got to me and I saw Opera on Suprnova. So I decided to get it. Which marked quite a memorable conversation with Abby, and shortly after, she reinstalled it. And here we are.
Opera! The OFFICIAL Browser of Abby x Sawah!

I use FireFox mostly. Gotta love them Tabs. ;)

October 27th, 2004, 4:45 PM
I'm guessing Internet Explorer, since that's basically Avant Browser.

October 27th, 2004, 4:48 PM
I have boring ol' Explorer. I've used many before, though.

October 27th, 2004, 5:11 PM
I use Firefox and Opera. I use Firefox more often though, but I still like them both.

*Chikorita*: www.mozilla.org/products/firefox Download it then XD

Firefox pwnz j00 almost as much as Good Charlotte pwnz j00~ No seriously, Firefox is fast, clean, secure, and non-buggy... at least it doesn't crash my computer like IE does.

Firefox has THE crappiest rendering engine. It's fine to adhere to standards, but at the expense of redraw speed? Blech.
Opera == <3<3

furefox all the fudging way

Firefox owns IE, hands down :)

October 31st, 2004, 8:40 PM
IMO FireFox is 100% better then IE in everyway *huggles FF*

October 31st, 2004, 8:51 PM
Miroku...you took the words right out of my mout. It is the best browser, hand down, that I have ever used!

FF's redraw speed seems perfectly fine to me, it's faster than IE anyway and better standards.

Firefox's speed is almost exactly the same. It's that people have so much spyware and other junk on IE that slows it down. That's why you see a speed difference.

November 3rd, 2004, 3:08 PM
Even though I've cleaned my spyware out, I still prefer FF, as the tabbed browsing and popup killer make life so much easier.

November 3rd, 2004, 3:15 PM
There sure seems to big a big cult push for Firefox, atm. With that…spreadfirefox stuff and all. Still though, it’ll never be enough to counter all the people who just load up IE with Windows. o.x;

That's what you think. XD *laughs evilly*

I use Firefox now. I use to use Avant, and IE. But I like firefox except for the occasional new window when clicking links but I survive. I would still use IE since Service Pack 2 came with popup stopper but I got tired of having my task bar so full. I would be doing hardly nothing and have a scroll bar on my task bar.

I use FireFox because I have used my IE for over 4 years so it has gotten to be extremely slow. And the pop-up blocker on IE was the most annoying that you will ever find. So I use FireFox now.

November 12th, 2004, 4:39 PM
That's what you think. XD *laughs evilly*
Yes it’s what I think. For every one person smart enough to know what a browser is, and that there are others, there are 20 more who just double click “internet” and load up their manufacturer’s software and crap. The majority of computer users are not as intelligent as you need to be these days to use one.

i voted on inernet explorer,but i just got fire fox,and its awesome.

November 12th, 2004, 7:50 PM
Firefox....greatest browser ever....on Linux anyway....

November 14th, 2004, 4:33 PM
Firefox is the greatest. *puts a Firefox crown on* I RULE YOU! XD

November 23rd, 2004, 6:41 AM
Firefox rox! I used iexplore but there were more illegal operation shutdowns than page loads. So ********************** Iexplore, Firefox roolz! (Wat was I gonna be puttin in place of ********************?) I dunno, nothin matches.:)

Firefox....greatest browser ever....on Linux anyway....
Well, basically Mozilla and Firefox are the only browsers for Linux if you count out Opera, but very few use Opera. Probally no one on Linux, except for me, uses Opera, but I only use it sometimes. Every other browser is based off Mozilla.

November 24th, 2004, 8:17 PM
you are forgetting Konqueror,Lynx,Links,and galeon(even tho thats based off of mozilla)...I never use those browsers anyway.

November 26th, 2004, 7:22 PM
Firefox is my main browser, but I just got Opera yesterday. I'm using it now, and I like it. It's the fastest at saving pics, and it has a lot of options. It's saving me so much time because my Firefox was pretty slow at saving pics.

November 26th, 2004, 7:38 PM
Opera is the way to go.
It's like FF, but faster and better, and better.

Actually it's not like FireFox... FF really annoyed me :P
Anyway, Opera is fast, tabbed, easy, skinnable, and isn't FF.
That's good enough for me XD

November 27th, 2004, 5:24 AM
Heh, I'm using both Mozilla Firefox 1.0 (as preferred browser) and Internet Explorer 5.5 (if it doesn't work with Mozilla).
Internet Explorer is more stable than Mozilla (no, I'm not a newb, but that's a fact) because Microsoft can spend money on quality control, but it is discontinued and Mozilla has newer functions like PNG transparency.
